I have passed it on to him Steve,

If i have any emails back i'll paste it into this topic.

We are moving house from Thursday so Kirby Muxloe Weather is moving to www.desford-weather.co.uk or http://desford-weather.co.uk but this won't take place till the internet is back up at our new house from the 11th of December.

Hope you're enjoying Spain. Warmer then it is here.

I had a reply which reads the following below.

I looked it over. This is actually a bug I fixed about 6 months ago that, yes, affects recent versions of Mono.
If I have free time this weekend I'll see about updating the public version.

Once hidsharp update get released I'll test it on my weather station and if it's ok with Steve I can zip it up and publish cumulusmx version 3044. since steves retired.

I'll test with libudev1 and mono 4.6.2 which comes with stretch.

No, please don’t do that, Cumulus is still my software, and I'd still like to retain some control over its distribution, until such time as I say otherwise. In any case, you wouldn’t be able to update the build number and it would get very confusing.

because your retired

Being retired is able to do the things you want, when you want, if you want! And being lucky if you still can :)

Wishing you a continued safe and enjoyable travel Steve.

Hi Richard,

I've posted an alpha version of HidSharp 2.0 on my site as well as on NuGet. Let me know how it works for you.

There are some small code changes needed to move over to HidSharp 2.0. For instance, HidDeviceLoader is replaced by DeviceList.Local. Nothing wild though.

Have a good weekend,

James

As implied, that won’t work without changes to MX.

would it take you long to make the changes to MX please Steve because I bet all of us would love the problems of upgrading mono to a more updated version.

It’s not simply a case of just making those changes, and in any case it’s far from clear that this later version would actually solve the specific problem of Fine Offset stations not being detected.

The first post in this thread still applies, i.e. I have no idea when the next build will be released, if at all. I’m on holiday, remember...

Once we get somewhere near the south coast of Spain or Portugal (Algarve, possibly) we may look to stay put for a month or so, and then I can perhaps look at another release.
